The most recent advances in satellite and fiber optic technology bring our amazing world to us without having to leave the comforts of home. The first response to the challenge of the context distinction draws on a broad understanding of the term logic” to argue that we cannot but admit a general, domain-neutral logic if we do not want to assume that the success of science is a miracle (Jantzen 2016) and that a logic of scientific discovery can be developed ( section 6 ). The second response, drawing on a narrow understanding of the term logic”, is to concede that there is no logic of discovery, i.e., no algorithm for generating new knowledge.
Philosophers of discovery were thus compelled to demonstrate that scientific discovery was in fact a legitimate part of philosophy of science. The algorithms select only a small number of the publications as a breakout, only a part of which will prove to be a real breakthrough.
Your membership promotes scientific literacy and gives millions of students opportunities to fall in love with science. On the other hand, our algorithms find many publications not selected by Redner as the fourth column in Table 1shows. The combination of our algorithms and also Redner’s algorithm succeeded in identifying all remaining 11 publications.
The results of applying our five algorithms to the validation dataset are presented Table 1. The second column in this table shows the numbers of publications that, according to our algorithms, should be considered potential breakthrough research-publications.
Recent philosophers of science have used historical sketches like these to reconstruct the prehistory of current philosophical debates about scientific discovery. People have in the past expressed their various views about the meaning of language. Feist, G.J., 1999, The Influence of Personality on Artistic and Scientific Creativity”, in R.J.
